    Dear Maureen and Family, Condolence on Kathryn's passing and joy in remembering her. As a fellow Saab D'Youville resident since its opening, I found your mother to be a true lady in all respects. She was the perfect president of the Resident Council, always listening, never judging, and receptive to doing the best for everyone. Her example is that of D'Youville's Mission. Best and prayers, Charlie
